True heroism.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

US President Donald Trump's Twitter account briefly vanished on Thursday but has since been restored, the social media company said.

An employee deactivated the @realdonaldtrump account, it said, clarifying that it had been their last day in the job.

The account was down for 11 minutes and Twitter is now investigating.

Well that person just won the award for best last day prank ever. :lol:

I wonder if the same person could have posted a tweet on Trump's feed. That's a bit scary. Could have announced bombing North Korea or something, because Trump surely would tweet it!

Donny's on a twitter rant this morning about Hilary, the FBI and his own justice department. Hopefully this means he's got wind of more news to come in the Mueller enquiry.

Yep. He has called her it before apparently.

Is she, though? I've never heard whether or not that was actually true.

It's like he doesn't realise he can just pick up the phone and ask the FBI to look into something.
It's makes about as much sense as normal people tweeting "My wife just made a cup of coffee and didn't make me one, DO SOMETHING FBI!!!!!!!!!!".

Either way he is using a racial slur to describe her.

In April 2012, the Boston Herald sparked a campaign controversy when it reported that from 1986 to 1995 Warren had listed herself as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) directories, called the AALS Directory of Law Teachers.[63] Harvard Law School had publicized her minority status in response to criticisms about a lack of faculty diversity, but Warren said that she was unaware of this until she read about it in a newspaper during the 2012 election.[63][64][65] Scott Brown, her Republican opponent in the Senate race, speculated that she had fabricated Native American heritage to gain advantage in the job market.[66][67][68] Former colleagues and supervisors at universities where she had worked stated that Warren's ancestry played no role in her hiring.[64][65][68][69] Warren responded to the allegations, saying that she had self-identified as a minority in the directories in order to meet others with similar tribal roots.[70] Her brothers defended her, stating that they "grew up listening to our mother and grandmother and other relatives talk about our family's Cherokee and Delaware heritage".[71] In her 2014 autobiography, Warren described the allegations as untrue and hurtful.[72] The New England Historic Genealogical Society found a family newsletter that alluded to a marriage license application that listed Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandmother as part Cherokee, but could not find the primary document and found no proof of her descent.[68][73][74] The Oklahoma Historical Society said that finding a definitive answer about Native American heritage can be difficult because of intermarriage and deliberate avoidance of registration.[75]

They're making a lot of hay from bullshit they know their base will eat up.

There is a very long podcast by the Arms Control Wonk people who said it was basically bollocks and that the amount of uranium that had been sold was minuscule and that the company would need an export license to actually export it from the country, which they currently don't have.
